  1. 2018 NFL Draft thread - A New (false) Hope

    Beane said he sees Phillips more as a 1 technique rather than 3 technique like Kyle. Awesome value. Our D line is going to be so much better.
  2. 2018 NFL Draft thread - A New (false) Hope

    I think it comes down to McDermott more than Beane on whether our first two picks succeed or not. Both are super raw and need a lot of coaching. There's no denying their talent, but they're going to need a lot of coaching and grooming. I have a lot more confidence that Edmunds can develop into a quality player because I believe his deficiencies can be overcome a lot easier than Allen's. I am not a huge fan of not having a second round pick and not selecting for another 65 picks, but there's no denying we added talent. The question is can McDermott coach these guys up? I think Daboll will have his hands full with Allen. We shall see.

    Both of our picks are super talented, but raw. McDermott must have confidence he can coach these guys up. I have my doubts, especially on Allen, but if McDermott can develop these guys then we hit a home run.

    I agree. This is such a huge night. Can we please build off of last season and actually show that we're moving the right direction? I will be happy with Darnold, Rosen, or Mayfield. I will be a little upset if we take Allen at 12 and I will be pissed if we trade up to draft him. If it wasn't in the cards to trade up then I let's go BPA and add serious talent to this roster.

    I am watching it on ESPN because I like their HD the best. Man, if we can some get Darnold I will be so happy. Rosen would be a great consolation prize for me too. Is it pretty set that Mayfield is going #1?

    Lol. I guess since it’s tradition we will roll with TLBF thread. Did TLBF create the EJ Manuel draft day thread? Maybe we need to change up the mojo on second thought. Lol jk. There are so many reports going around my head is spinning. A couple of days ago a report came out saying the Giants weren’t going to trade back and now there’s a report that the Giants want to trade down. Who knows! Can we fast forward 7.5 hours? I am getting sick of reports and speculation.
  7. NFL Draft Thread

    I figured we should have a new thread for the draft now that we're about 24 hours away. What are your guy's plans? I am having people over for a draft party. There will be a keg of beer and plenty of food. Pulled pork sandwiches, meatballs, jalapeno mac n cheese, beer bread. It's going to be heaven in my mouth. Hopefully the Bills don't rain on our parade with a disappointing first round. I can't remember a draft where I've been more excited.
  8. 1 week away from the real thing! Trents Mock Draft

    I agree with you. If Goedert is the BPA by a wide margin then you have to select him. We have a lot of needs and we're likely not going to be able to fill them all this year. It will likely take another year or two for McBeane to have their roster in place. We will have a lot of cap room and another draft next year to start filling out our roster and add depth.
  9. 2018 Buffalo Bills Schedule

    So awesome! When's the last time we've hosted a MNF game?
  10. The Josh Rosen Hype / Rumor Train to Buffalo

    To piggy back off of this, here's the total passing attempts and sacks for the top 4 QB's the past two seasons. Josh Rosen- 683 attempts, 39 sacks, 5.7% sack rate Baker Mayfield- 762 attempts, 44 sacks, 5.8% sack rate Sam Darnold- 846 attempts, 35 sacks, 4.1% sack rate Josh Allen- 643 attempts, 48 sacks, 7.5% sack rate
  11. The Josh Rosen Hype / Rumor Train to Buffalo

    A lot of the people that are Allen apologists are making a lot of assumptions and excuses. I hear a lot of if's and a lot of people that are against Allen bring up numbers and data. The fact is the tape and the data both agree that Allen is the least pro ready of any of the projected top 4 QB's. You can say IF he has a strong run game, and IF he improves, but right now he is a very risky pick and I don't want to give up a ton of picks to move up and get him. If he falls to us or if we move up just a couple of spots and give up minimal draft capital then I would be okay with that. You say Allen is Cam Newton at the worst? I think that's a stretch. Newton performed better in college against SEC defenses. Allen was in the Mountain West. Allen did very little to show that he can uplift the talent around him like Cam did. I feel like you're trying to justify Allen just in case we draft him, but I hear very little factual points to support your argument, You could very well be right and Allen turns out to be a franchise QB. I am still in doubt after watching a ton of Mountain West and Pac 12 football.
  12. Richie Incognito Retires

    Did you guys see Shady said he would give him 300K if he stayed lol. He knows how important he is. This is a huge blow.
  13. Forum by forum Mock Draft - Pick 22

    I will go with Rashaan Evans LB Alabama.
  14. Bills Draft Prospect meetings

    I agree with you. Especially with how snake bitten we've been at finding a franchise QB and actually developing QB's. I know this is a new regime, but the stigma is still there. I would rather make a safer pick with the other top QB"s in the draft that are more polished.
  15. The Josh Rosen Hype / Rumor Train to Buffalo

    Here's a good article about Allen by PFF. In 2017 he was 13 of 42 on throws over 20 yards through the air from the los. Woof, Buzz your girlfriend! https://www.profootballfocus.com/news/draft-josh-allens-2017-season-defined
